The location and price, but don't expect anything else. The service provided by the staff is poor and border line rude as if though they did not want to be there. I am retired and disabled military which this resort caters to mostly. The rooms have not been updated in a long time as the bed sheets look extremely outdated.... More

I tried to leave a review 4 days ago but for some reason it never posted. We arrived at the hotel after 14+ hours of travelling. We stood in line over 45 minutes to check in. We were tired and hungry so we grabbed a quick bite from Happy's located at the resort. The food was terrible, the only edible... More

Great hotel and grounds on a great swimming beach (Waikiki). Rooms are pretty standard with nice balconies. We had an ocean view room on the 14th floor in the newer tower. I recommend this hotel if you are visiting Oahu. I recommend skipping Oahu or only spending a couples days there to see Paerl Harbor and few other sites. The... More

Our 9th visit in the past 12 years! No, it does not have a boat load of fancy things, but most those we know in our military experience have a high appreciation for the place and the Aloha here! The ground are still lush and beautiful, although the gardens are not the over the top stuff at the Hilton next... More

The Hale has been an excellent hotel over the years. Unfortunately, it now appears to a bit tired. My wife and I spent to separate visits at the hale koa this month at the beginning and end of a vacation on the island of Oahu. On both stays there were problems with the hotel having our rooms read at check... More

The grounds are lush and beautiful. The beach is lovely and the ocean waterwas great for swimmig. Staff was very nice. I would give 5 stars but the rooms are outdated and small. We didn't spend much time in them so it wasnt an issue. Luau was cheap, but disappointing. The food and drinks at Bibs was good. Pool staff... More

Pretty much everyone has pointed out the good in previous reviews here so I don't need to beat a dead horse. Some things I would like to point out are: Location; in my opinion the best location on Waikiki Beach. Your are away from all the hustle and bustle of the middle section, hence you get the chance to relax... More

First off, the resort itself is nice and you have a little of everything from bars, snack bars, spa, and a PX. Housekeeping did an amazing job keeping our room in order, so a big "THANK YOU" is in order. The front desk, though nice, were not very knowledgable or helpful in getting around. Example- When inquiring about the Atlantis... More

For teh rates paid and location, can't beat it. So it has a public access beach. regardless, the hotel is established for military and DOD civilians. To take advantage of the services, you must show you DOD ID or room key. We had two mainenance problems while there. The maintenance people showed up rather quickly especially since it was in...

Never having stayed in a military resort before, I didn't know what to expect. It was a surprise. Great service, great view, wonderful parks, lots of things for kids to do in the surrounding area and well kept. We had a family vacation with 3 grand kids ages 7 to 17. There was something for everyone. The fireworks were great... More
